‘Being ‘You’ Now’

I have been contemplating the idea how simply living in this ever-changing world is a profound challenge to our sense of self. We are bombarded on a daily basis with information and images telling us how we should and shouldn’t be. It can be a challenge to come back to our inner knowing, our inner compass, the truth of who we are. Yet this is our true north star.

 

Have you pondered on how you arrived at and became who you are in this moment in time?

Magical Mystery Tour of Life

Do you sometimes feel as if your life is a magical mystery tour? One in which you are on a ride to some unknown destination? I know that I often feel as if I have a ticket to ride; yet have no idea where I am going!

See; the mystery of following one’s Soul Calling is that it never follows a linear pathway. There is no road map that marks every twist and turn. Instead what we are asked to do is to develop greater trust in ourselves.

This can be challenging. What if we get it wrong? What if we are on the wrong road? What is it going to look like?

 

One thing for certain is that it is never how or what we imagined it would be like. It is never what our small mind would plan or think it ‘should’ be. Without a doubt, it is always greater!

I am finding it fascinating to witness the Greta Thunberg’s of the world express their heart centred Soul calling. We can observe that Greta and many others like her, do not necessarily set out to achieve what is unfolding through them. They seem to simply be in the momentum of their Soul Calling.

We are not all destined to ignite a world wide movement or speak at the UN. Yet we all have the capacity to set our course to be as Soul Centred as possible. Our intention is the key, always. No matter how mysterious and uncertain life seems to be; we can always align with Soul and have this be our guiding light.

Our Souls will is to shine light in the world. This will expand our awareness and this expanded awareness will bring greater opportunity to express ourselves in truth, in whichever way that looks like. Our Soul has this in the bag, so to speak, we just need to get out of the way!

How do we achieve this? I feel that this piece below from the Elohim, says it all in such a beautiful way…

Are you in the ‘Spiritual Closet’?

What is this ‘Spiritual Closet’? And are you hanging out in it? If so how do we ‘get out’ so to speak? Let us start by defining what the closet is and to do this I am borrowing words from the Sirius Collective on the subject…

 

“The spiritual closet is a containment of sorts — a way to contain your essence. And the only reason that you ever put yourself in there, is to apply the brakes. Yes, you simply want to put the brakes on, in your life! And once in there you find that there is no tomorrow, no expanding until you have found the lock and key to free yourself from this self imposed prison.”

It can be hard to follow one’s Soul calling

It sure can be hard, even painful to follow the calling of one’s Soul. Oh yes, I hear you say!

For myself and so many people I have spoken to of late have found this year to be one in which:  ‘I was going along with grand intentions, all was coming into alignment, yet bang’... all of a sudden it stopped. What the heck!

Does this sound familiar? 

For me it was simply that everything I thought I was being called to create and manifest would continue to expand. Yet it came to a full stop! All of a sudden, it became obvious to me that taking no action was my action! I am talking in terms of my group work. I had many ideas, was feeling the love and the flow, yet  suddenly I was being guided not to make a time for the next one… not another one or any one at all.

What does it take to live as a Soul Centred being?

What does it take to live as a Soul Centred being – to live life from and within its perspective?

We all feel deep down that there is a greater purpose for our lives and seek to discover it. We all desire to feel aligned with our true purpose, to find ways to expand our relationships and authentically express ourselves in the world.

Yet life does not come with an instruction manual. There are no 10 steps for the Spiritual Path, no handbook that clearly states some special rules that will lead us to Nirvana.

Yet what is true is that we are all unique and interconnected aspects of an infinite, abundant and ever-expanding Universe. We can never be separate from our Soul. Yes, never separate…simply not possible! We are Guided by Soul because it is our essence. We only have to remember and align ourselves through our inner guidance system.

What if Life Is Meant To Be Simple?  

What if Life Is Meant To Be Simple? Have you ever noticed that your mind can be racing with many thoughts, many of which seem to contradict each other? Conflicting ideas, images, philosophies and a myriad of ways to improve the human condition abound in this world. All jostling for our attention.

Yet what if life is supposed to be more simple than we are led to believe? What if it is far more simple than the complexity our minds have made into somewhat of a reality for us?

Embracing the Power of Change


Embracing the Power of Change. I have been thinking a lot about the word ‘change’ of late. It has been said that change is the one constant in life and yet sometimes it feels as if it happens too fast, too much and all too soon since the last one! Yet change is simply an opportunity for a change in perspective. Sounds simple when put that way, yet it can feel far from simple when our whole perspective of the world changes. When the veil is lifted even the slightest and the curtains drawn back to let in more light, the way we were no longer serves and we are standing and operating from a whole new paradigm. This serves to be the next starting point to our next shift in perspective and so the never ending flow occurs.

Time to Embrace our Perfect Imperfections

Time to Embrace our Perfect Imperfections. The primary purpose of inner Guidance is to expand and evolve out of our limited belief structures. It is beyond the limitations we have placed on ourselves. Therefore it is not wise to restrict the flow of our guidance by boxing it into our old limited belief ‘system’.

I recall many years ago feeling frustrated at not getting something in particular that I wanted in life and asking my Guides how I could ‘get’ it. I can honestly say I was unhappy with the answers I was getting. I was pulled up by my husband, the wisest person I know, who said to me in no uncertain terms –‘that my guides are not my slaves’.  So true! They are offering us wisdom and an expanded view of our reality that we may come to understand and live as a Soul centered human. Not an egocentric existence!

Playing With Change

PLAYING WITH CHANGE. One of the things that I have been noticing of late is that so many of us are in a state of frustration with wanting radical change both on a personal and collective level. And we want that change now!

The Guides teach us that we are all interconnected and as such can never be separate from a never-ending flow of expansion. Does it always look and feel that way? No! The ego is impatient and wants everything at once and it lets us know that change is not happening nearly fast enough.

The Time is Now!

The Time is Now! I awoke on Saturday morning to a different world. Or was it that, I was different?

The Friday night before I had little sleep, tossing and turning whilst grappling with thoughts of the horrendous carnage that had taken place in Bourke Street Melbourne City that day. As I endlessly looped the images in my mind, my heart was broken into a thousand pieces as I recalled the upturned pram that had been wrenched from a mother’s grip and dragged metres down the road. In this pram was a tiny baby the same age as my granddaughter.

As I lay awake I was also aware that on the other side of the world a tyrant was being sworn into office. Sleep did not wish to relieve me of my thoughts.

Why, oh why is this happening? How did it come to this on my watch? Who and what could I have been and done differently so that I did not need to experience this? Whilst my human mind was struggling with these questions, I was also remembering that true answers can only come from a spiritual perspective that encompasses a higher vibration.
